Chris’ Picks for July 2023: Will Ferrell Month



Elizabeth’s Books, in the heart of the Town of Lunenburg’s bookselling district, boasts a rental library of more than five thousand DVDs. The shop usually opens around 6 p.m. each evening, never closing earlier than 10 p.m. Each month, proprietor Chris Webb recommends films for your consideration.

“June is Will Ferrell month,” says Chris. “He’s quite funny.”

Near the back left corner of the shop’s DVD section, you’ll find a good selection of the Saturday Night Live comedian’s titles including these top picks:

Blades of Glory (2007)

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)

Anchorman (2004)

Ever the absurdist, Will Ferrell surprised the audience at the 2008 ESPY Awards when Tiger Woods was called to accept Best Male Athlete – the Anchorman comedian took the stage in his place, giving a surreal speech where he didn’t acknowledge he wasn’t the legendary golfer. Today, HB Studios, headquartered in Lunenburg, produces the popular PGA Tour video game series that lets you also pretend to be Tiger Woods!
